Belly Fat is Dangerous in People with a Normal Weight

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
  Even people with a normal weight who have excess belly fat are at 2.75 times the risk for cardiovascular death and 2.1 times the risk of all cause mortality according to researchers at the Mayo Clinic. Information from the NHANES study showed that an abnormal waist to hip ratio is a powerful predictive statistic. Abdominal fat is correlated with the...

Bioelectric Fingerprint of Cancer Cells

submitted by: admin on 06/24/2016
  Can changing bioelectric signals halt tumor growth? Biologists at Tufts University discovered a bioelectric signal that identifies cells that are likely  to become cancerous. And by altering the membrane charge can block the development of cancer! Tumor sites had a unique level of depolarized membrane voltage relative to surrounding tissue that...

Can Hyperbaric Oxygen Boost Brain Repair?

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
  Researchers from Tel Aviv University published an article in PLoS ONE in January of 2013 on how hyperbaric oxygen treatment can resuscitate the dormant neurons around a stroke. This area around the stroke, or peri-infarction area may regain function decades after the stroke. The researchers correlated the effects of this treatment with CT and SPECT...

Do Antioxidants Preserve Youth?

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
  Antioxidants neutralize free radicals and that helps us fight inflammation and disease. However, stimulation from free radicals also extends life by activating cellular repair genes! Antioxidants inhibit this response. Some antioxidants, such as beta carotene and retinol can actually shorten life in certain settings. A retrospective review of 68 studies...

Does Exercise Help Arthritis?

submitted by: admin on 09/20/2013
Our bodies adapt to exercise, but we can also break it down if we traumatize it. They also adapt to disuse by becoming less capable. Use it or lose it is correct. Osteoarthritis is an example of over-stressing a joint. The body needs time to repair itself and analgesics are not the answer. Infrared light therapy and glucosamine are reviewed.        

Dreaming Heals Emotions

submitted by: admin on 09/20/2013
  Stress chemicals such as nor-epinephrine shut down and the brain processes emotional experiences during REM sleep according to new research coming out of UC Berkeley that is published in the journal, Current Biology. During REM sleep memories are reactivated, put in a perspective, and connected and integrated, but in a state when stress neurochemicals...

Fish Oil Derivative Cures Cancer

submitted by: admin on 06/24/2016
  An article published in the journal, Blood, reported that a compound from fish oil targeted and killed stem cells of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) in mice. They were completely cured of CML and with no relapse with a daily injection for just one week! The compound stimulated the p53 tumor suppressor gene that regulates the response to DNA damage...

Gut Microflora and Colon Cancer

submitted by: admin on 04/24/2014
Studies from the Wistar Institute published in April of 2014 suggest that the microbes that make up the microflora of the intestinal tract can suppress DNA repair in the cells lining the intestinal tract and lead to colorectal cancer. It is only recently that most gastroenterologists have begun to appreciate the importance of the microflora in the gut. We...

Proliferative (Prolo) Therapy with Richard Gracer, MD

The injection of a mildly irritating substance into ligaments or tendons that are lax to stimulate the production of normal tissue. Many people with back pain have lax ligaments that can be fixed.              

Rethinking Chronic Illness with Russ Jaffe, MD

submitted by: admin on 10/14/2013
Chronic disease, degenerative or autoimmune disease we talk about repair deficiency and inflammation. We measure inflammatory factors to determine how much disease is present. If cholesterol is healthy and not oxidized it is good; we need it to make hormones, vitamin D, and cell membranes. We need to measure oxidized forms of cholesterol and other fats. It is...

Rethinking Inflammation with Russ Jaffe, MD

submitted by: admin on 10/14/2013
Inflammation is the final common pathway of illness. Inflammation is a repair deficit problem that must be dealt with if we're going to repair the physiology that leads to cellular dysfunction and disease. Proactive prevention through the alkaline way is a cornerstone of wellness. Homeostasis is about living in balance and harmony with nature. Rediscovering...

The Causes for Breast Cancer

submitted by: admin on 10/17/2013
Only about 10% of cancers are caused by genetic factors such as the BRACA gene defect. Factors increasing the risk for breast cancer such as estrogen, environmental factors, unhealthy fats, alcohol, low fiber diet, smoking, birth control pills, and HRT, are reviewed. Methylation and related factors such as B12, folic acid, and B6 influence DNA repair and...

Why Aging is a Mistake

submitted by: admin on 10/24/2013
While we all age, we do it at different rates depending on how well we take care of ourselves. Our chronological age (the number of years we have) is often quite different from our biologial age (how well our biology functions). There are examples of people who are over 80 but still function very well and others where someone 10 years old has the physiological...

Why Belly Fat is not All Bad

submitted by: admin on 11/27/2013
When I was in medical school the omentum, that fatty membrane in the abdomen that covers the abdominal cavity and its organs, was believed to be no more than a repository for fat. Today researchers have discovered that it is a organ that regulates immune T cells and is a rich repository of stem cells that are necessary for organ repair and regeneration. It may...
